What We Do:

The UW Life Sciences Program provides a common series of courses for all life science majors and non-sciences majors.

Who We Are:

The professors & program courses expose students to the fields of cell & molecular biology, genetics, ecology, and evolution in order to familiarize students with the diversity of life on the planet. Courses in the UW Life Sciences Program offer a cutting-edge view of biology & biological research, which are taught by some of the most respected teachers at UW.

"I feel like science is a bigger part of my life now. It has helped me in my daily life by understanding the importance of the natural resources we have, and it has helped me to have a better understanding of taking initiative in doing research on science-and to realize that sciences is actually all around me."

-UW Undergraduate Non-Science Major


Our Goal for Students:

The UW Life Sciences Program provides a grounding in the biological sciences for all life science majors on campus, as well as for non-science majors. Courses within the curriculum address four fundamental goals at a level appropriate for each course:
